Old Montreal   Leave a comment

Looking Up at Notre Dame

We spent dusk in Old Montreal, the original site of the city, established in 1642. We spent a fair amount of time driving on its cobblestones (wishing for a road bike), or just walking around.

Marché Bonsecours is public market, opening in 1847.

It is down the street from Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel, founded in 1771.

Our last stop was the Notre Dame Basilica. At the time of its completion in 1843, it was the largest church in North America. I’m really pleased with how the colors came out on this picture.
